How to paint my tray ceilings

Help! If our walls are painted BM Cafe Swiss and the trim/moldings/doors are painted BM Simply White, then what color should we paint the ceilings? Specifically the tray ceilings in the bedrooms, which have no trim where the wall meets the ceiling. The primary bedroom is the only one that has molding added to it (shown below). The current owners have them painted the same colors as the walls (dark shades of blue and gray/greens). To lighten/brighten the whole space, should the tray ceilings be all Simply White (same as baseboards and trim color) but in a flat sheen, or the same as the wall color, Cafe Swiss (flat sheen)?

2nd living room is like this:

3 bedrooms are like this:

Primary bedroom:

Or should the ceiling of the wall and the tray ceiling be Simply White, with the sides of the trays being Cafe Swiss (like this pic below)?
